Teaching at College

Although we have high expectations of our teachers, we also make a commitment to help them be at their best. We can guarantee a stimulating, interesting and collegial work environment.

The life of a teacher at Christ’s College has a tripartite structure: 1. Teaching 2. Pastoral care 3. Co-curricular involvement We expect our teachers to be committed to all three domains of their teaching life and to gain satisfaction froma job well done in developing the whole person in our students.We put a particularly strong emphasis on relational strengths. The Centre for Teaching Excellence & Research promotes continuous improvement in teaching and learning through a dedicated professional learning programme, supporting and empowering our teaching staff to improve their practice through reflection and coaching, as well as providing access to external professional learning opportunities.

opportunities for professional growth, networking, trips, teacher exchanges, conferences and courses. Each year College invites inspirational and thought- provoking guests, all experts in their respective fields, to speak to our community – whether in a small workshop with a few staff, in the classroom, or at a public event in the Assembly Hall. Our teachers are subject specialists, passionate about sharing their skills, knowledge and experience in the classroom. However, at College we expect more. Every teacher is also assigned to one of our ten Houses, to assist with pastoral care andmentor individuals or small groups of boys, helping themwith goal planning andmonitoring their progress.We also expect our teachers to get involved with co-curricular activities. It is all part of life at College and,we believe, enriches everyone’s experience.
